The term “Roma and Travellers” is used at the Council of Europe to encompass the wide diversity of the groups covered by the work of the Council of Europe in this field including Roma, Sinti/Manush, Calé, Kaale, Romanichals, Boyash/Rudari, Balkan Egyptians (Egyptians and Ashkali), Eastern groups (Dom, Lom and Abdal), groups such as Travellers, Yenish, and the populations designated under the administrative term “Gens du voyage”, as well as persons who identify themselves as Gypsies.


Kick-off Conference for a Greek Roma network


Together with the Central Union of municipalities and communities of Greece (KEDE), the Alliance plans a kick- off conference for launching a Greek Roma network. This network would revive the old Rom network that previously existed and spearhead the fight against anti-Gypsyism at the local level and should lobby other Greek municipalities, regions and national stakeholders to join them in this fight.

Therefore the Alliance and KEDE try to gather a large group of committed local and regional authorities to start off this network for Roma Inclusion. The seminar is foreseen to take place in April and will be hosted by KEDE. The Alliance task force looks forward to take the opportunity for establishing a Roma network in another Council of Europe member state.

Further Information is to be announced.
